Berkeley Law Death Penalty Clinic

The Berkeley Law Death Penalty Clinic involves students in every aspect of its capital work. It currently represents indigent death row clients in California, Alabama, and North Carolina, and has represented key amici in several of the Supreme Court's recent capital cases. Although the Clinic receives core financial support from Berkeley Law, the costs of vigorously litigating capital cases — always with the full participation of law students — are substantial.

Last year's benefit raised enough funds to hire our first Clinical Fellow, an attorney who has expanded the ability of the Clinic to serve as a resource for lawyers representing death row inmates, particularly in the South. In order to maintain a properly staffed Clinic that engages in aggressive individual representation as well as impact litigation and research, the Clinic needs — and is very grateful for — your financial support.
